According to The Big Idea: The New M&A Playbook by Clayton M. Christensen, Richard Alton, Curtis Rising, and Andrew Waldeck, between 7-9 out of 10 acquisitions fail to deliver on the M&A strategy! Many firms believe the press release, company all hands meeting, and revised organizational chart are the three tasks required to complete to declare successful integration of an acquired business or merger activity. Caserta Solutions organizational integration framework creates an operational environment to ensure business objectives are met with your M&A organizational integrations.

Based on the concepts articulated in Five Frogs on a Log: A CEO’s Field Guide to Accelerating the Transition in Mergers, Acquisitions And Gut Wrenching ChaBusinessman hand touching ACQUISITION word on virtual screennge by Mark Feldman and Michael Spratt, Caserta Integrate™ provides the backbone of your integration plan with more than a press release, “all hands” meeting and revised organizational chart.  Without tying the original business objectives for the acquisition to discrete goals and actions, most companies fail to achieve the full potential of the acquisition.  Caserta Solution will guide your organization through pre-acquisition state and through Day 1, Day 90, and Day 365.
